OUTCOME: Increase the

OUTCOME: Increase the number of women playing cricket W10 and ECB Women’s Softball Festivals Our initial objective was to ‘increase the number of women playing competitive cricket’. We introduced W10 in 2015 as a means to establish more women’s teams who would aspire to compete in the Hampshire Cricket League. Whilst the number of teams in the League has increased, it was not a direct result of W10 teams (apart from 1!) taking the next step! Unexpectedly however, W10 was hugely successful in creating a demand amongst mums, wives, girlfriends and sisters for a short, fun and social format of the game. It created an environment where they could learn new skills and keep active, without being committed to competitive weekly fixtures. It also ensures club cricket remains relevant to local communities and sponsors and crucially has created another source of volunteers. Our programme received national recognition and as a result the ECB based their national Women’s Softball Cricket Festival programme on W10 and similar projects. The ECBs Softball Festivals complemented W10, it provided a further opportunity for W10 teams to play informally as well as creating another avenue for women to try cricket for the first time. W10 and Softball festivals are here to stay, we are looking for more clubs to get involved in 2018, if you are interested please contact Mike Pollard at michael.pollard@ageasbowl.com 12

OUTCOME: More people with a disability will be aware of and have the means to access high quality sustainable opportunities. Since winning the National Lottery Awards - Best Sports Project in 2011, the programme has continued to grow. Working with partners – Energise Me (formerly Sport Hampshire and IoW), Active Ability Southampton and Lord’s Taverners, opportunities for disabled people to try cricket for the first time have been extended by delivering in community centres in Hampshire. We have also expanded the programme by entering 4 teams into national disability cricket league, widening opportunities further. W10 • 17 teams involved over 3 years (12 still competing) • 45% had not participated in sport before (W10 participant survey 2015) SOFTBALL FESTIVALS • HCB ran 5 festivals – Winchester, Lymington CC, The Ageas Bowl, Bedhampton CC, Southampton Mela Festival The success of the programme is underlined by the selection of three Hampshire players in the England Physical Disability squad and two in the England Lions, all of whom have contributed to Hampshire winning the National D40 Finals in 2016 and 2017. Moving forward, one of the county squads will be replaced by four District Programmes (North, Winchester, South East & New Forest), who will play matches against each other over the summer, with the best players feeding into the County team. • 18 teams entered, 42 fixtures played • 200 glasses of prosecco consumed! • 9,200 women took part in 272 festivals nationwide, 60% were new to the game (ECB survey, 2017) 13
